Possibilities for .netrc, or for git? Git will always specify the

Yeah, I think that is a good thing. The credentials used for
example.com:31337 are not necessarily the same as for the main site.
It's less convenient, but a more secure default.

What I was more wondering (and I know very little about .netrc, so this
might not be a possibility at all) is a line like:

  host example.com port 5001 protocol https username foo password bar

To match git's representation on a token-by-token basis, you would have
to either split out git's "host:port" pair, or combine the .netrc's
representation to "example.com:5001".
